an agreement on a spending plan. house speaker john boehner says he is willing to work with president obama to reach a deal. boehner says this week's election is proof the american people want republicans and democrats to work together for a solution to a crisis that could plunge the country back into a recession. >> the american people have spoken. they've re-elected president obama and they have again re-elected a republican majority in the house of representatives. if there's a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges that we all face as a nation. >> boehner says the deal could include new tax revenue to help reduce the national debt. >>> don't be surprised if you've lost a few friends on facebook if you've shared your thoughts on the election on the social networking site. the election is sparking a facebook feud. those posts often offended people with different political believes. some took the dramatic step of unfriending the ranters, and for those not ready to end the friendship over politics, there's alwa

that wealthier americans should pay more. john boehner is signaling some room for compromise, but it may be tough over tax rates. the negotiations are going to start and they've got to be intense now if they're going to do something to head off this train wreck that's coming. >> looking back at the election, what can republicans take away from obama's re-election? >> that if they're going to win the white house again, they have to be a bigger party than they are. they are primarily a party of white men. they have lost ground with the changing demographics of the country. the president expanded the coalition of younger people, women, minorities, latinos, republicans have been left behind in that area. and they're going to have to figure out where they go from here if they're really going to expand as a party. >> and on the flip side of things, i know we're only -- we're not even a week away from when the election happened, but are we able to pinpoint how president obama won? >> yeah. he won by expanding his coalition of young people, of minorities, particularly latinos, and women. and he did it ac
